Barack Hussein "No Middle Name" Obama Further Disrespects Sergeant, Uh, Uh

There is no depth to where Obama refuses to sink when it comes to his campaign for power. It seems the family of Sgt. Ryan David Jopek, or "Sergeant, Uh, Uh" as Obama refers to the fallen hero, doesn't want the Democratic Presidential joke nominee to wear the bracelet!

Warner Todd Huston at NewsBusters reports (emphasis mine):

...Madison resident Brian Jopek, the father of Ryan Jopek, the young soldier who tragically lost his life to a roadside bomb in 2006, recently said on a Wisconsin Public Radio show that his family had asked Barack Obama to stop wearing the bracelet with his son's name on it. Yet Obama continues to do so despite the wishes of the family.

Radio host Glenn Moberg of the show "Route 51" asked Mr. Jopek, a man who believes in the efforts in Iraq and is not in favor of Obama's positions on the war, what he and his ex-wife think of Obama continually using their son's name on the campaign trail.

Jopek began by saying that his ex-wife was taken aback, even upset, that Obama has made the death of her son a campaign issue.

Obama can't even respect the wishes of a fallen hero's family. Is this who you want to be Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces?

and yet, whoever Tracy is, the story is that she is the one that gave it to him for the very reason Obama is opposed to the war.

[i]Mrs. Jopek said she and her daughter briefly met the Illinois senator at the rally and showed him a picture of a smiling Ryan dressed for battle. She said the senator hugged her and her daughter, asked a couple questions about Ryan and told her how much he appreciated the bracelet.

"I wanted him to know my son's name for one thing, for when he's commander in chief," Mrs. Jopek said during a telephone interview in which she frequently grew emotional. She said she was somewhat uncomfortable getting so publicly involved in the war debate, but felt the issue was too important for her to remain silent during this campaign.

She said she's a Democrat who will vote for Obama in Wisconsin's primary Tuesday. Like Obama, she said she was against the war from the start and had a hard time watching her son go to war. [/i]
